Social-Emotional Learning Webinar
An Edmentum Webinar Series
Session 2-Essential Tools for Students
Join NYSCATE Corporate Council member Edmentum at 11 am ET on October 7 for the second part of a three-part webinar series on including social-emotional learning practices for you and your students.
In order to care for others, it is important to be aware of our own state, needs, and lens. This session will equip administrators with the knowledge and tools to address their own self-care/wellness needs so they can provide opportunities for the staff they support to thrive. This approach to collective, whole-person care is transferable to students and enables educators to be their best selves.
Session 2 - Essential tools for students, will focus on how to support your students' social-emotional needs, with an evidence-based social-emotional learning platform that utilizes clinical content built by mental health professionals with real-world experience.
Join Laura Porter-Jones, Educational Programs Consultant, Edmentum, to learn more about supporting your students' SEL needs.
Audience: Superintendents, Assistant Superintendents, Guidance Directors, Academic Supervisors, School Counselors K-12, Teachers K-8
